May 16, 2016 Market

Greetings Friends.

We kick off our market season tomorrow at Pulaski’s The Marketplace Farmer’s Market.

Asparagus

Come join us there and stock up on fresh harvests of:

  • Asparagus
  • Mixed loose leaf lettuces
  • Spinach
  • Salad Turnips
  • Radishes
  • New potatoes
  • Arugula
  • +/- Tomato plants (Cherokee Purple, Striped German, German Johnson, Yellow Brandywine, Black Cherry, Glacier)

The Marketplace is located in downtown Pulaski at the train depot.  It offers a variety of craft vendors, artisans, meats, produce and more.  You can also grab a bite to eat, enjoy a beverage from places such as West Wind Winery, and listen to some music while you shop.

Please join us and stock up tomorrow.  We will NOT be at the Marketplace next Tuesday due to day job schedule conflicts.

See ya tomorrow!

Leaf Lettuce

Finally reaping some bounty 

 It’s been remarkably warm. Spring fever is in full swing. I want fresh green, leafy things.  I’ve not peeked under the row covers in weeks…may be a month and a half. 

  So pretty!

So excited! 

 Finally reaping some bounty!

Let’s dig in!

Fresh Eats For Dinner – Winter Veggies

Home from a short break at the beach, we are happy to be back on the farm. Things seem to be ok despite some warm temps, heavy rain, strong winds all followed up with chilly temps. You, know…the weird up-and-down weather we’ve been having as of late.

Here’s what my peek under the row cover revealed:

Market Saturday

It was another crazy day of harvesting, cleaning, packaging, and dodging raindrops in preparation for tomorrow’s market. We’ll be in downtown Radford from 8-1 with various lettuces, spinach, greens, kales, pak choi, mustard tatsoi, arugula, radishes, oregano, and Chinese cabbage. Phew. See you there.
